Come hear Laura Park, the 2017 Columbus Comics Residency recipient, speak about her creative process with interviewer, comics writer, and blogger Jared Gardner, a professor of English and Film Studies at OSU. This program marks the kickoff to the 2017 Cartoon Crossroads Columbus festival,
a city-wide celebration of cartoon arts.
Park is the winner of the annual Columbus Comics Residency, a partnership between CMA and Columbus College of Art & Design (CCAD). Each year, a committee of local comic critics, curators, and creators seek graphic artists from outside Columbus who demonstrate an experimental approach to creating comics and graphic novels. The three-week residency, formerly called the Graphic Novelist Residency, is designed to provide the winner with an opportunity to develop a work-in-progress and to have an exhibition at CMA
of their work.
